I live very near one side of this project and work very near the other side. I pass the work site twice each workday. I can tell you that the information in the article was just a confirmation of what I have observed since this project started. Heavy equipment sits unmoved in the same spot f…

I am thoroughly sick of people thinking the only way to solve their problems is to shoot up a bunch of other people who may or may not have anything to do with their problems.

As a 35-year resident of Mountaindale Road, I am pretty concerned that after Dec. 1, it will be the only entrance to the Frederick City Watershed.

Throughout my 92 years, I have been a member of several great nonprofit organizations, each of whose goal has been to make a difference in the lives of others, sharing and helping, just because we can.

Sometimes the letters to the editor are so strange, so upsetting, and so truly bizarre that if you don’t laugh at them, you might just cry. Such is my reaction to Earl Wahlquist’s demented letter of Aug. 3. Our poor God: He gets credit/blame for a man put in the White House not by the people…

The Aug. 8 headline on a supposed news story by the Associate Press reads “Trump seeks to link shooter to liberal politics.” As in the case of many earlier AP headlines and stories, this headline does not reflect the facts.

A recent study in Preventive Medicine found that the gun homicide rate in the United States is 25 times that of other high-income countries. We don’t have higher rates of mental illness, and we don’t play more violent video games. What we do have more of in this country — a lot more of — is guns.

On a quiet night, in a little, out-of-the-way corner in Frederick, was one of the best performances I’ve seen. The Other Voices Theater company put on its performance of “Young Frankenstein” under the direction of Susan Thornton. In these days of violence and negativity, it was wonderful to …

The recent op-ed “What a moderate truly believes” by Gary Bennett was excellent, but it didn’t explain how we got into this partisan mess. I agree that more than half the populace falls into the moderate category, yet presidential elections consist mostly of name-calling and unrealistic prop…

The county is going to audit the sheriff’s office concerning how much money is spent on the 287(g) program, which keeps lawbreaking illegals off our streets. It is a great first step. The county should also audit how much it cost the taxpayers to house, feed, give medical treatment, provide …

If we really want safe schools, we should turn to guard dogs. Guns and officers may stop the carnage quickly, but guard dogs may stop things from happening in the first place.

Thank you for the wonderful tribute to George Delaplaine. My husband, Terry, and I consider him a friend along with being one of the most interesting, knowledgeable, sincere, talented and accomplished people we know. He is kind, faith-filled, humble and generous. Your reporter Colin McGuire …

Your Aug. 8 editorial, “We have no time to waste,” shows how biased your paper is. I’ll just quote one paragraph: “Words matter. President Donald Trump began his campaign four years ago by calling Mexican immigrants in the U.S. illegally ‘rapists and murderers.’” He did NOT call ALL Mexican …

It is plain to see that Jan Gardner and the country government is going after the 287(g) program. If at first an outside audit doesn’t get you the results you want, then spend money on an internal audit that will give you the outcome that you want, mainly because you can control it.

I see the county is auditing the sheriff’s department’s 287(g) program. No one wants county funds wasted, so I’m fine with making sure that’s the case.

A fatal flaw in the city’s 2030 Strategic Plan process is its total neglect of constraints. The draft document’s list of goals, objectives and action items is a helter-skelter wish list of nice-to-have projects and programs that are supposed to form the basis for the realization of a so-call…

With so much focus on the Democratic debates these days, it is easy to succumb to thinking that the 2020 election presents a choice between a far-left candidate and Donald Trump. I write this letter to remind members of the Republican Party that Trump need not be the GOP’s nominee. Since it …

I would like to thank the staff of The Frederick News-Post, and in particular Allen Etzler, for their professionalism. Recently several comments of mine were deleted from the comment section of The News-Post that I felt did not violate the outlined standards. Mr. Etzler politely, efficiently…

I am responding to Mr. Naik’s Aug. 2 column “Let us celebrate the good deeds.” In it, he mistakenly states that “A country created and nurtured by immigrants is now standing against them.” In 2018, through September, 820,748 immigrants were granted lawful permanent resident status, according…

The front-page article by Mr. Bump of the Washington Post (“The story about Elijah Cummings’s district that Trump isn’t interested in telling,” July 30) is a perfect example of the media today. The writer presents a biased view of the Trump-Cummings feud. The writer even contradicts himself …

What is Trump’s plan for urban renewal? Revitalization of urban areas in decaying/abandonment communities around the country? Or isn’t that his job description as president of the United States?

I read Ryan Marshall’s Aug. 4 front-page article “No end in sight” with great anxiety. As the Monocacy Boulevard project drags on, it appears that our city has once again let us down. In addition to no “end in sight” for travelers along the southern and northern parts of the city, Market Str…

I want to respond to an article in The Frederick News-Post about Baltimore that was printed last week. In the article, there was mention of one of the drug rings, called LNG (short for Liberty and Garrison) that operated in the northwest area of the city, Garrison-Liberty, which refers to Ga…

There are times when posting a comment online to an article has its advantages — one can respond with some great emojis that get right to the point, the angry face, the thumbs down, the head slap ... you get my point. You can’t do that in a letter to the editor, but I will try in my response…

Bill Pritchard’s July 28 commentary, “Not a Betty in the bunch,” focused on people’s names, but it also addressed names in a new subdivision, focused on people in music. Grouping street names isn’t really new, and I hope you will consider a more extensive column on the subject of subdivision names.
